Lost Number: Heroines

June 28, 2008

Remember my last post “My Anticipated Korean Visual Novels” ? I checked up on the Lost Number homepage and they have updated it with character profiles (actually only of the heroines) so i thought i should post them and translate their profiles briefly. The trial download did not go well, i couldn’t load it. But i’m in the midst of trying to run it so i’ll post it if all goes well.

Firstly, you guys should know that you will be playing as Park Jin-ha.

Now on to the heroines of Lost Number:

Han Mi-na

Our hero’s cousin as well as childhood friend. Currently in her 2nd year in high school. Their houses are located close to each other and they played a lot together when they were young. She is currently in the school’s track and field department where her performance is excellent. Because of her lively character as well as good performance in sports, she is popular with her female juniors. However, she finds this annoying. Her hobby is cooking, where her skill is unexpectedly good. She enjoys rock ‘n’ roll and metal music.

Yu So-ra

A 3rd year in Yo-han high school. She is the model student and ranks top in terms of grades in school and earns recognition and respect from others. Teacher have high expectations of her. Although being a model student, because of her good character and looks, she is also considerably popular with the student body. Her hobby is reading and she manages the school library after school and immerses in reading.

Ryu Ji-hye (Yanagi Chie)

A second year in Yo-han high school. Ji-hye was born between a Korean father and a Japanese mother. Her father worked in the Korean embassy in Japan and she has lived her live in Japan until transferring to Korea. She treasures the name “Ryu Ji-hye” that her father gave her but she is more familiar with the name “Yanagi Chie” that her mother used to call her and prefers it. Because of her family upbringing, she is lady-like and instantly became popular with the boys when she transferred over. She surprisingly has great talent in vocal singing.

Dan RienTian

A third year in Han-sol secondary (junior high) school. (i’m too lazy to translate this… but i’ll do it next time. please understand this fucking slacker, thank you)

Estelle Brightman

In charge of the choir in Yo-han high school. Currently the substitute teacher for the teacher in charge of the choir who is on leave due to personal issues. She is a substitute teacher for only 1 semester. She spent her student years in Japan where she got to know Ji-hye. Hence, she has a friend-like relationship with Ji-hye. Because of her open-minded attitude, she is popular with the students. However, she turns strict when she is teaching the choir. Her colleagues feel that if not for her occasionally rash (or idiotic? can’t find a good word to translate to) attitude, she would already be achieving great heights.

Ha Yu-mi

2nd year in Yo-han high school. She is in the same class as Jin-ha and is a very close friend of Mi-na. She has a calm attitude and because of the totally opposite attitudes of Yu-mi and Mi-na, many find it surprising that they are friends. Her hobby is music and film appreciation. Unexpectedly, her favorite music genres are metal and hard core.

Okay! So far the game looks good from the characters i’ve seen. HAREM YAY! (actually most visual novels are…) I’ll be sure to be the first to finish Mi-na, Ji-hye and Estelle’s paths!!! MUHAHAHA! Long live hawt girls!
